Lower Back Pain Treatment
We offer natural treatments to relieve your back pain and other discomforts. Dr. Tige Buchanan, Dr. Karlton Kwa, and Dr. Frank Paiano at Buchanan Health Center in Leesburg offer a variety of natural treatments to reduce your lower back pain and help you regain as much function and flexion as possible.
Reasons for Lower Back Pain
We would like to take a moment to educate you about the common causes of lower back pain. You could have a herniated or bulging disc that is placing pressure on the nerves and soft tissues in your lower back. If it is on your sciatic nerve, you could develop sciatica, which is a term that refers to numbness, pain, and weakness that can extend from your lower back, through your hips, and down your legs.
Another common cause of lower back pain in pregnancy. The hormonal changes during the first trimester and the baby pushing on your muscles and nerves in the third trimester can contribute to pain and nerve-related symptoms.
If you are overweight, you could be creating excess pressure on your back, which could lead to pain and discomfort. For some people, the reason for the pain stems from repetitive stress from physical activities or work. Some people also have lower back pain from a chronic condition, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia.
Diagnosing Lower Back Pain
We will ask you a few questions to determine the problem. You may need to move your back in certain ways and identify where you have the pain. Our chiropractors will also inquire about when you have pain and what other symptoms you are experiencing. In some cases, we will order imaging tests to look at the bones or soft tissues in your back.
Treating Lower Back Pain
Fortunately, all of our treatments are natural and work with your body’s natural healing process. One treatment we may recommend is chiropractic alignment. Typically, you will need more than one to see the full effects. During the treatment, our practitioner will move the vertebrae in your back so they align with the discs.
We will provide spinal decompression as well. For this treatment, you are connected to rigging that pulls the top half of your spine upward and the bottom half downward gently. Exercise therapy is another possible treatment as well.
